yeast infection or bacterial infection

If you have a bacterial infection but you treat it like a yeast infection, is that bad?

Re: yeast infection or bacterial infection

It won't help, but it probably won't hurt much. If you treat a yeast infection as a bacterial infection, however, it WILL get worse.

Re: yeast infection or bacterial infection

if you Google the symptoms of yeast infections and bacterial infections to compare the two you can probably come to a conclusion your own. I thought I had BV but when I Google'd the symptoms I realized it was in fact a yeast infection. If you find that your symptoms are pointing toward BV then I would definatly go see a doctor...the longer you wait the more damage it will cause. BV can be known to cause infertility if gone untreated.
